Art Program

The Mary Greeley Medical Center Auxiliary invites you to enjoy our award-winning art program and "Ames' largest art gallery."

Explore the hallways of Mary Greeley Medical Center, and you will find a wide-ranging permanent collection of art from regional artists in a multitude of media including: watercolor, fiber, pastel, oil, pencil, ink, paper sculpture, acrylic, photography and more. The main hall provides temporary rotating exhibitions with art for sale. Our glass case in the main lobby contains artist’s three-dimensional works in wood, jewelry, metal, pottery, fabric and mixed media also for sale. New exhibits begin every few weeks.

Many of the works are for sale. Sales are handled through the Auxiliary Gift Shop, located in the main lobby of the medical center. These funds help Mary Greeley Medical Center add to and maintain its permanent art collection.

The Mary Greeley Auxiliary promotes art as healing, therapy, pleasure and inspiration to be enjoyed by patients, visitors, and employees.
